On the 7th of April 2019 our sister Rita Ojunge disappeared. Rita was living with her children in a Lager in Hohenleipisch, Brandenburg. Ritas family wanted to know what had happened. The refugees living in her Lager demanded justice for Rita and the closing of the Lager. The Lager is in very bad condition and absolutely isolated, surrounded by a forest.
The police was reluctant to search for Ritas whereabouts. Only two months after Rita had disappeared, the police started to search for her. They found her remains just 200m away from the Lager, in the forest. The racist lack of investigation continues.
Now, two years after Ritas murder, the prosecutor’s office might close her case and the Lager in Hohenleipisch is still not abolished.
That is why Women in Exile & Friends are inviting you to join our antiracist and feminist Demo in Cottbus on the 8th of march, the international womens day. The meeting point will be Cottbus Hauptbahnhof Northside at 10am.
Let us commemorate Rita Ojunge and may she rest in perfect peace and power!
Let us all continue to demand justice, the continuation of the investigation and the abolishment of all Lager!
We need proper prevention, prosecution and sanctioning of Feminicides. Refugee womens lives matter!
Lets come together, be many who care and support each other!
